Launching OE-Cake

OE-Cake is still expired for OS X - lets work around that

So OE-Cake now has a beta for windows - but not OS X.

We still have the binary from their old version that expired some time ago - we were launching it with ARD with the below trick, but now I've moved it into a read-only applescript application that the students can launch themselves:

try

do shell script "sudo date 1103100008" user name "admin" password "*****" with administrator privileges

end try

do shell script "open /Applications/OE-CAKE\\!.app"

delay 10

do shell script "launchctl stop org.ntp.ntpd" user name "admin" password "*****" with administrator privileges

do shell script "launchctl start org.ntp.ntpd" user name "admin" password "*****" with administrator privileges
